Dan joined the staff of Ridge Church in summer 2019, after completing his M.Div through the Immerse Program at Northwest Baptist Seminary. Prior to serving as Pastor of Youth and Young Adults here, he and his wife Jillesa lived in Salmon Arm, BC, where Dan worked with youth and camp ministries over 6 years.
His passion is to see students experience the love of Jesus no matter who they are or what they have been through, and to see young adults step into a life of apprenticeship to Christ. He’s thrilled to see God’s Kingdom expand and lives be transformed through Christ in Maple Ridge and the surrounding area!
He loves to spend his time with people, playing or watching team sports, and trail running with a good podcast. He and his wide Jillesa live in Maple Ridge and also love to travel in search of the best coffee shops, and they are so excited to be a part of what God is doing at Ridge Church.
